Ibanez GWB205E Gary Willis Electric Bass Natural Flat
- Finger Ramp
- Bartolini® GWB PU & NTBT EQ
Brand new bass with standard tuning, factory setup, and full manufacturer warranty.
Bass virtuoso Gary Willis is revered by legions of fans worldwide. In addition to having a distinguished career as a solo artist and co-founding the legendary fusion band Tribal Tech, Willis has played and recorded with the biggest names in the business. As an artist who holds strong opinions about gear, he found deep kinship with the bass builders of Ibanez. Through the years, the release of each of his signature basses is a notable event among the bass gear press. Now, the GWB205E 5-string is introduced with similar fanfare.
The signature model features his secret weapon—the Willis ramp. The ramp prevents the right hand from digging in too hard, resulting in a lighter touch for lightning fast playing and better tone.
The GWB205E features an Ash body, GWB 3-piece Maple neck with ebony fretboard. Three strap buttons—one on the front horn and two located in different positions behind the bridge—allow the player to ergonomically fine tune the bass according to hand positioning. An endless array of tones can be accomplished via a pair of Bartolini® GWB pickups along with onboard Bartolini® NTBT 2-band equalization with an EQ bypass switch. Beyond its obvious playability, the Natural Flat finish contrasted with black hardware makes for a visual impression of mystery and power.
